- Mapdl.edcsc(key='', **kwargs)¶
Specifies whether to use subcycling in an explicit dynamics analysis.
APDL Command: EDCSC
OFF - Do not use subcycling (default).
ON - Use subcycling.
Subcycling can be used to speed up an analysis when element sizes within a model vary significantly. Relatively small elements will result in a small time step size. When subcycling is on, the minimum time step size is increased for the smallest elements.
This command is also valid in PREP7.
